Single-segment speed run of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, done on December 21 2005. Available in low and normal quality.
This is the first single segment any% run for this game. I used the same route as the segmented any% run except that I don't skip the grapple beam, I've to fight the grapple guardian in order to finish the game. The sky temple key route is the same. I had to grab more items though, I grabbed more energy tanks and missiles than in the segmented run because there are too many dangerous bosses in the game, grapple guardian, boost guardian and Quadraxis are a pain in a SS run. I wasn't planning to get the energy tank in the room just below Chykka but I noticed that grabbing that energy tank was as long as going to the save point in venemous pond in order to refill my life. So, I grabbed the energy tank instead. Sometimes during the boss battles, I prefer going much slower because I didn't want to die. Health is more important than speed in some parts of the game.
The run went pretty well until I reached sanctuary fortress where the most difficult tricks are required. Agon wastes and Torvus bog didn't cause me much trouble, I had luck with the 2 underwater dashes in hydrodynamo station and with the ghetto on the laser thingy in Crypt. All the big mistakes I did were in sanctuary fortress. Performing the 2 mid air morphes in Watch station and in hall of comabt mastery is hell in a SS run. Hopefully, I had luck in transit station where I grabbed the early power bomb expansion expansion, this room didn't cause me trouble.
I think that a time of 1:55 or below is more than possible because there are big mistakes in this run. Luck has a big place in the final time. I didn't have very much luck in this run because many dark pirate troopers appeared in upper Torvus and made me lose time. This is a thing which can't be controlled, it's 100% random. Less mistakes and more luck could probably make the final time lower.
